This is a basic introduction to the services offered by Collier Library's makerspace, the Collier Library Experiential Lab.

Welcome to the CELL, Collier Library's Experiential Learning Lab!

The CELL is a dedicated space within the Collier Library for interactive maker technology. Here, you can submit requests to use our 3D Printers and Posters, use the Mac computers and video editing software for academic projects and hobbies, and explore both digital and traditional creation with our tablet and digital pen, the letter die cutter for cutting out letters and shapes, and the electronic keyboard for music composition.

The CELL is located on the Ground Floor of the library, next to the Computer Lab.
